I will put the Karatsuba into my local copy and take it to the test
over the holidays. I will report on its performance as the data

I added a brief PDF report on generic numeric programming
and included three sample files in the SVN repo today.
I can't write quickbook so I wrote LaTeX.
I can't add *.tex to SVN (my bad on some kind of mime or whatever).
I added the LaTeX text to this e-mail.
If you approve of these examples, may I ask you to translate my doc
In my opinion, Boost.Multiprecision is a wonderful creation from
John and Paul and my preliminary contributions. There is nothing
like it in compiled code for MP numerical analysis. I have a lot
more ideas for this thing than time.
My dream list is *way* bigger than the time we have right now:
* 1,000 digits high performance
* Transition to competitive base-2 back-end
* up to 1,000,000 digits for the hunters
* PSLQ algorithm for experimental mathematics
* Seamless interface to Python and Mathematica (in my original research paper)*But we need to go to review with what we got soon.*
Best regards, Chris.
P.S. I also have a potential solution to my excessive guard digits.
I can show it to you with the Karatsuba stuff and, based on your approval,
